If the stress of picking the perfect color to wear at your daughter or son’s wedding is wearing you down, here’s a suggestion. A champagne colored mother of the bride dress always looks beautiful. Here’s why.
1. Champagne goes with Everything
Champagne closely resembles beige is considered a neutral. Some champagne shades are warmer, others more cool. This means champagne mother looks lovely with just about any color of bridesmaid dress from black, to burgundy, peach, green and blue.
2. Champagne is Elegant
Bright colors are energetic and lively, pastels are soft and romantic. Champagne is understated and elegant. It’s a quiet color but speaks volumes about refinement and sophistication.
3. Champagne Complements White
If you are worried that champagne might take away from the bride’s wedding gown, don’t be. Champagne complements white and cream and many brides specifically ask their moms to wear this chic color. So long as your dress is definitely darker than the bride’s, you should be fine. Be sure to check with the bride to make sure she approves before you buy your dress.
4. It Flatters your Skin Tone
Champagne is a soft color against aging skin and can be very flattering when you get the right shade. Remember I said there were warm and cool tones?
If your skin and hair has warm, golden undertones then go for a champagne color with pale orange-yellow or undertones. If your skin is more pink and your hair has ash undertones, then try a slightly more rosy beige or taupey-champagne. Getting the right undertone will make all the difference in the world to how you look in a champagne mother of the bride dress.
5. Champagne was Made to Sparkle
Since champagne is a kind of beige it can look super flat without any sparkle. Since weddings are all about that, look for a champagne with a bit of sparkle, sequins, lace or any other type of embellishment that lifts it up and make it more special occasion-like.
6. It’s a Timeless Color
Wedding photos of the family are going to be sitting around the house for years to come so it’s important to wear a color that is going to stand the test of time. Champagne is an excellent choice. It’s not trendy- it’s classic and will always look fabulous, now and in 50 years!
7. It’s a seasonless color
Champagne is also a color that works year round. It looks just as beautiful in fall and winter as it does in spring and summer.
8. You can wear it Again
Since champagne is so seasonless and timeless, you can wear it for other special occasions. If you choose a simple, elegant style in champagne, like this dress above, you could also wear it to a charity ball, New Year’s Eve party or any other type of formal event.
Champagne Shoes are the perfect match for a champagne dress. Black would be too heavy and silver wouldn’t look right at all.
